Excellent as usual, Dave.

Spot on, the park has been built next to the MoD base at Donnington. It'll be run by J G Russell, 5 trains a day has been mentioned. It's also been mentioned that DRS are bringing 47s back for this work, how close to the truth that is I don't know.
Is that in addition to the 2 trains a day DRS already run for them? If it is, i wouldn't be surprised if extra locos were needed. Surprised that it's 47s though, I'd have thought 66s would have been more suitable. Unless of course the 47s will be displacing 66s off other duties....

The exsisting J G RUSSEL services don't come out of Donnington, the 5 trains a day are brand new flows, not sure why it's 47s but 47s is the word (well, number ;))

Cheers for the comments :)
